Skull Island, Jake Broglio

Skull Island is a small, military base off the coast of the virgin islands. It is home to the criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty IV, and the infamous Sledge Hammer Gang.
Little is know of Professor Moriarty, except that he is a descendant of the original Professor Moriarty, and his involvement in the attack on the US Senate. On April 18, 1978, Professor Moriarty led an attack on the Washington. Allied with Captain Death, the Mistress, and the Unstoppable Man, Moriarty led his army of robotic man-rats. They captured and held hostage the entire US senate and hundreds of civilians for a unknown ransom. After a 5 day stand off, The Order of Insurmountable Power was able to defeat Moriarty and his conspirators. Only eight senator and twenty civilians were killed, along with Captain Death, the Mistress, the Unstoppable Man and all of Moriarty’s robotic man-rats. Moriarty narrowly escaped, but The Order of Insurmountable Power followed Moriarty back to his fortress in the Baltics and arrested him. While awaiting trial, Moriarty broke out of prison with the help of The Red Devil and went in to hiding. Weeks later, The Red Devil was found dead presumably killed by Moriarty.
Two years after the attack on the US senate Moriarty resurfaced and stole an anti-gravity device from a research facility in London. He used the device on “La Flotante Isla” or The Floating Island off the coast of the Virgin Islands. Moriarty used the anti-gravity device to bring down the Floating Island and placed it at its current location. Then, with the help of the Sledge Hammer Gang, the Professor enslaved the island’s population (the flodians) and constructed his new fortress in the shape of a giant skull on the islands north shore. In 1981, Moriarty proclaimed himself Supreme Leader of Skull Island and in 1982 ,he declared war on the United States and Sweden. In the following years there have been many attempts by the United States to capture Skull Island, but all have failed. Skull Island sits on a large Coradium deposit that is harvested under the island. The Coradium is then used to power the islands defense systems, including the devastating Coradium Cannon. Now, The Island is a safe haven for villains and criminals. It is believed that in his old age, Moriarty will retire as the Supreme Leader of Skull Island and pick a new Leader, but before this happens Moriarty will launch a final attack on The United States…
